The ARC hosted the Queen’s University Open Wrestling Tournament this past Sunday with over a hundred wrestlers in attendance. The Gaels placed sixth with nine points.

The Gaels saw top performances from third-year wrestlers Joel Smith and Kellie Heney who finished second and third respectively. Smith would lose in the gold medal match by decision, even after scoring more overall technical points in his weight class.

With a fourth-place finish 76 kg, first-year wrestler Feodor Snagovsky was the only other Gael able to grab points for the team.

Brock Wrestling Club was awarded the team gold medal with 85 points. The Guelph Wrestling Club placed second with 42 points.

After the winter break, the Gaels will compete in St. Catharines on Jan. 8.
